Happy Thoughts | Tips and Tutorials

Hi everyone, Diane here sharing a layout with the exclusive Story Tellers collection, which I love, love, love! I know you're gonna love it too! It is a colorful, fun and works with any theme.

Here is what I made with the collection.

That's my sweet pooch, Sam. It has been awhile since I've done any layouts of my fur babies and how can I resist that sad puppy face?!

The 3x4 cards are so versatile and can be used as is, but I like to think of new ways to use them. Here, I cut one down into a triangle and used it for an embellishment over the photo along with one of the die-cuts from the Tidbits pack.

When I saw the words "happy thoughts" in the clear acetate pack, I knew they would be perfect with this "oh so sad face" photo. My journaling was added on top of the photo with a pen for slick surfaces and leads into the title which I embellished it with the fun heart flair.

For the finishing touches to my layout, I added candy dots and hearts in coordinating colors to the circles below the photo.

You can pick up the exclusive Story Teller collection at Chic Tags. Can't wait to see what you create with it!
